Bengaluru-based Greyscale Design Studio has designed a holiday home in Mudigere, Karnataka that is built by using laterite stone. The house is named ‘Ovoid’ because of its egg-shaped pillars that stretch across its front deck. Nestled in the greenest depth of "The Coffee brewing and Co." coffee estate, it is a contemporary adaptation of the local architecture with pitched roofing.

The design of this home stemmed from the basic brief of, flowing with the land topography and creating the entire structure so that it’s within the foliage height.
The greenery of the plantation is mirrored in every part of house that you see. While you walk along the passage that interconnects the living and sleeping spaces, or within each room as inbuilt seaters.
The Trough-Like Roof
The roof is the design feature of the house which is an inclined curve, like a trough, one-piece structure cast together.
The house is constructed in the way that allows sunlight in every corner of it throughout the day.
One can truly feel the serene outdoor all across inside the house.

The house is built in locally available laterite stone, which in its exposed form arrests all your senses along the passageway from living to bedroom.
Deck on Both Sides of the House
The deck on both sides of the house, captures the rays of the sunrise and sunset.
The entire 3200sqft of built-up area is stretched in a linear format in this single floor house.

The kitchen has a horse shoe counter with an extended back kitchen for additional requirements.
The ensuite master bedroom is a quaint setting accented with an antique dresser and the entire width on one side as insitu window seating.
